Coming soon to Ozark Village Inn

Are you hungry? Maybe you should try the new pancakes that will be on the Village Inn menu soon. The pancakes were created by South Elementary second graders in Mrs. Jatho’s class. Village Inn, the Adopt-A-Class partner for Mrs. Jatho’s class, sent the class a list of possible ingredients, which students used to create a pancake. The class then voted on which pancake to make. During an Adopt-A-Class visit, Village Inn employees helped the students make the pancakes.

Author's Purpose

After reviewing author's purpose, fifth grade students at East Elementary became purposeful in writing about Blow Pops. First, they wrote a short story featuring a Blow Pop — who knew Blow Pops led such exciting lives? Next, they researched five fun facts about Blow Pops. Lastly, students wrote a paragraph where they attempted to convince Mrs. Surface to give them a Blow Pop. As you can see, students were successfully persuasive.
